Classroom Volunteering

The classroom volunteers program at JCDS offers many opportunities for closer involvement in your child's education. It's also a great way to support the school. Both teachers and homeroom parents may coordinate classroom volunteer schedules, which begin in August. Volunteers must attend a short training session to participate. Volunteers who have already attended a previous session are not required to do so again.
